Renton School District partners with credit union for school spirit debit cards

Each time a debit card is used, Gesa will make a donation to each of the four high schools.

Gesa credit union recently announced a partnership with Renton School District to launch a fundraising program benefiting Renton High School, Hazen High School, Lindbergh High School, and Talley High School through four new co-branded debit cards.

Each time a Co-Branded Affinity Debit Card is used, Gesa will make a donation to each of the four high schools to support their academic, extracurricular, and athletic programs.

To date, Gesa’s Co-Branded Affinity Debit Cards have raised more than $1 million for local partner districts, awarding more than $300,000 in 2022 alone, according to the credit union.

Gesa’s Co-Branded Affinity Debit Card Program supports local schools by earning money for partner districts each time a card is used. The donations help fund programs such as DECA, music, FBLA, FFA, athletics, and more. The program has also funded technology needs as school districts grapple with online learning and equipment upgrades.

Co-Branded Affinity Debit Cards are available exclusively at Gesa Credit Union and are free to Gesa members with a checking account. There is no fee for members to switch their card to any of the school designs.
